Haven't actually heard of them before, and a quick google search turns up quite a few possibilities. A search of the forums also turns up nothing. Could you post a link to their homepage please? Once we have the right company we might be able to provide more useful comment.

The website's quite impressive, but the phone no. on their website is a standard international freecall. so doesn't give any indication of where they're based.

Are they group tour operators, and is that the path you want to go down?

Also wouldn't hurt to get a couple of quotes from reputable companies operating out of Vietnam, like Vietland Discovery, Indochina Voyages, Exotissimo, Tonkin Travel. They'll all put together a tailor made package just for you: no group touring. Then just compare their offerings with your Backyard Tours quote.. It's possible Backyard Tours may work out cheaper, but you'll only know that by checking them against other offerings out there.

I like to deal with companies that have lots of reviews and ratings, not that all reviews mean anything or weren't fabricated. I don't know; after awhile you get a feeling for what's real and perhaps what's not. But as westendgaz pointed out, the lack of a physical address concerns me.

I'd be cautious. They have no address. For fun I clicked Vietnam, then Nha Trang and looked at the tours. Shows three tours; at least one of the photos is not from Nha Trang.

Clicked on the tour "Romantic Vietnam". The resulting page is a tour covering 8 destinations in 16 days. Very Vietnamese. And they claim to 'know what the tourists want'.

And all of their tours show the text 'Not yet rated'.
